Biography

Nivea Hamilton, born March 24, 1982, professionally known as Nivea, is an R&B singer who first appeared on rapper Mystikal’s 2000 single “Danger (Been So Long)”.
She then signed with Jive Records and released her debut single, “Don’t Mess With The Radio”, in 2001. The single did not do as well as expected, mainly due to lack of promotion. Her album was therefore pushed back to the following year. After some overseas success with the Australian release of the album, Nivea was reintroduced in the U.S. in 2002 with her second single, “Don’t Mess With My Man” featuring Brian and Brandon Casey (of R&B group Jagged Edge), which became her biggest hit, reaching the top 10 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Nivea’s self-titled debut album was released in December 2002. The album had minor success, debuting in the top 100 of the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart. In 2003, “Don’t Mess With My Man” was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category “Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal”; she lost to acappella group Take 6. Her third single “Laundromat”, which featured singer R. Kelly, was released at a time when Kelly was facing sexual allegations. Instead, Nick Cannon was featured in the music video as the boyfriend character. The next singles, “Ya Ya Ya” and “25 Reasons”, were only released to radio.
